More than 50 games have already been played in the NBA 2012-13 season and the Los Angeles Lakers still have not turned the corner. The team currently has a disappointing 25-29 record, four games below .500 leading into the All-Star Break.
Nobody knows if the Lakers will get it together and while many of you think there’s still a possibility, there’s a chance that this season isn’t the year for the purple and gold.
More and more rumors are spreading that stars Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard cannot stand one another. We didn’t believe the news at first being that both players seemed to be supportive of each other early in the season, but after hearing of the heated altercation between both athletes after the blowout loss to the Clippers, any chance the Lakers ever had of actually doing damage this season went straight out the window.
In addition, there’s now even more breaking news that Dwight Howard has plans of leaving Los Angeles and moving to Brooklyn to join the Nets. We know, here we go again.
Sources have said that Howard apparently spoke to current Raptors’ small forward Rudy Gay and mentioned how Gay “messed up” by getting traded to Toronto. Howard continued by saying that Gay “should have waited to join him in Brooklyn.”
Even before the season began, many Los Angeles Lakers’ fans were hesitant to fall in love with the 6’11 center because these people knew that there was always room for situations like this when it pertained to Dwight Howard. It might’ve been considered as being negative at the time, but it turns out that those fans were right.
It doesn’t matter who the player is, once fans hear of any rumors that the athlete wants to leave, any respect that those types of professionals ever had diminishes within the fan base. Dwight Howard is officially standing on thin ice and this scenario does not bode well for the Lakers’ chances of making a deep run into the playoffs.
